Celebrating the brilliance of nurses


Celebrating the brilliance of nurses


An inspiring national awards programme, Cavell Star Awards are given to nurses, midwives, nursing associates and healthcare assistants who shine bright and show exceptional care to one of three groups of people:

Their colleagues.

They’re the loyal team mate who cares when you’re having a tough day, the person that puts their arm around the whole team.

Their patients.

The trusty colleague who ensures their patients are always safe, comfortable and informed.

Patients’ families.

They go the extra mile to make certain patients’ families also feel part of the care journey.

Who will you nominate?

You know that nurse, midwife, nursing associate or HCA, so make sure they get rewarded for their sparkling qualities. Tell us why your colleague is a superstar and how they go above and beyond their usual duties.

What will happen?

We’ll email you to discuss your nomination and if successful you’ll get a dazzling Cavell Star medal for you and your team to present to your star colleague. Think about the surprise on their face! There’s also a beautiful Cavell Star pin badge for your colleague to wear every day as a reminder of how they shine. There’s no cost, all we ask is for you and your colleague to share your story with Cavell Nurses’ Trust to help celebrate the amazing work nurses, midwives, nursing associates and HCAs do every day in the UK.

Please note: Due to the popularity of the Cavell Star Awards there is currently a delay of a few weeks between submitting a nomination and hearing whether it has been successful.
